Today’s music video is Kitty’s Back by Bruce Springsteen. It’s his birthday today. I could have picked one of a hundred other songs, or one that’s more popular than this, but I have to say that this song shows the range of his work not only in the words, but in the music as well. To have written a song like this in his early20′s is incredible. This song isn’t played live too much anymore but when it is, it’s one of the best parts of the show. It’s a l0ng video, but worth your time. Promise.
